Riley’s past comes back to haunt him both professionally and personally.

His dead brother left more than just bitter memories for Riley to deal with. The FBI get involved and suddenly it is more than his good name that is on the line. Jack is always there for him but how much more can Riley’s husband reasonably be able to understand?

Especially when Riley finds out on his delayed honeymoon that he has an eight year old daughter he never knew existed…


RJ Scott has a knack for blending just the right amount of sweet with just the right amount of conflict in her books, and she does it again with Texas Winter, the continuing saga of Jack and Riley Campbell-Hayes.

On their delayed honeymoon, Riley gets a phone call that will forever alter the course of the Campbell-Hayes household, as a past that included a lot of mostly forgettable women imposes itself upon Riley in the very tangible form of a little lady who needs him now more than ever.

Finding out you’re a father eight years after the fact is a lot to digest, especially when the reason you’re finding out you have a child is because that child’s mother has recently died and left specific instructions that her little girl be placed with her unsuspecting father. Jack and Riley suddenly become parents and must work through the logistics of that, all while Riley also deals with the ramifications of his dead brother’s misdeeds that have come back to complicate his life even further, as well as an attempt at extortion from his daughter’s uncle.

Drama, humor, and a precocious child make for a heartwarming story of what it means to be a family, to trust and to protect those you love, even when you might not go about it in just the right way. Sometimes even the best of intentions can lead to mistakes, which Riley isn’t immune to, but it’s never in question that his family, his husband and daughter, are his number one priority.

For fans of The Heart of Texas, Texas Winter won’t disappoint.
